Make seamless patterns in Photoshop


Making seamless patterns in Photoshop is easy. Once you have a pattern, you can create your own backing papers, make your own backgrounds,  fill shapes , etc. I took the graphic of Mrs Pearl Nirdie that I posted yesterday and made a repeating pattern from it. Follow the steps in the pdf attached and see for yourself how easy it is to do.

    I’m new to this and have enjoyed browsing around your site. I’ve just tried to follow your download on making patterns in photoshop but I think I must be very thick as, although I can make the new document, I really don’t know how to get the image onto it, the ‘Place’ command is greyed out. What am I doing wrong?

      Hi Jan,

      Placing a file
      I create a new document and with the document on screen I go to the drop-down File menu and select ‘Place’.
      PS then presents folders/files (usually from the last location on your drive that you accessed or saved a PS file to).
      If the file isn’t in that location, navigate to where you have the image you want to place.
      When you have found the image, select it (click it to highlight it) and then click on Place (usually where you’d expect to see an ‘OK’ button.
      The image is then placed into your new document ready to be resized, etc.

      Hope this helps – let me know and if not we’ll see if we can work the problem out.

    I have to say …….your work is fantastic. I can only hope that some day I can create on my own some items as well as you have. My question does not have anything to do with this post and design using photoshop, but I did not know if I would post it to the actual older post if you would see it. My question is involving your Sliceforms that you have created. How are they designed…..which program are they made in? I have no idea how to go about creating works of art like you have. Any chance of a tutorial to help with would be appreciated. Thanks for your help in this matter.

      Sliceforms look more complicated to design than you might think – take a look at this link to Extreme Cards ( there is an easy to follow tutorial that will help you.

      I use Illustrator to design everything but you could use Inkscape, Silhouette Studio, Robomaster, etc. So long as you can output the drawing package to the CR/Silhouette, you’re good to go.

      I think it’ll be clearer when you’ve looked at the slice form tutorial on the Extreme cards site. Good luck.
